Top Ten in Scottrader

Scottrader allows you to review the top or bottom securities according to the performance criteria of your choice. Stocks/ETFs are organized by the three major exchanges - NYSE, NASDAQ and Amex - while options are listed separately. For each criterion selected in the Top Ten window, you will be able to view the ten stocks/ETFs or options that most closely meet that criterion. You may open up to ten Top Ten tabs in a Top Ten window. Additional Top Ten windows can be opened by clicking Top Ten again from the top of the Quote Grid window. Up to five Top Ten windows can be open at a time. Each Top Ten window is designed to offer a broad view of the market action on which you may choose to base your trading decisions. Information in Top Ten windows is refreshed every 30 seconds to provide real-time data.
